I never meant to shut the door..
I guess I’m more of an Elsa than I’d like to admit.
Stop pretending that I have it all together. If I’m scared, be scared, allow it, release it, move on.
This isn’t the person I wanted to be..
Always, always. Always it’s okay. Always it’s not.
But you’ve never seen that. And never you will.
When circumstances change, loss of meaning can hollow out the faith from within.
—Christian Mission by Dana L. Robert
The most important part is leaving. We cannot cling to notre dame. We cannot cling to our relationships. We cannot stay on retreat. We must find a way to keep our fire burning. This retreat wasn’t all about us, it’s about how we can better love and serve others.
"Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable, and we will all, at some point in our lives… fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts… that what we have is special. That it can be taken from us, and when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will now all be tested. It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves."
